A Scotsman, born in 1959, received his education at the Royal Academy of Music, where he studied composition, the violin and the piano. He quickly made his name as a versatile composer who blends classical and popular music.

Soon afterwards, he released his own album The Space Between Us.

Many more films have benefited from his music, including The Quiet American, Orphans, Love Actually, World Trade Centre, Elizabeth: The Golden Age and Far From The Madding Crowd, amongst many others.
